REMINDER – NO SCHOOL

PAINT FOR PETER – Final Recap – WE MADE THE GOAL!! Thank you for helping!
Thank you to all who donated to our annual Paint for Peter fundraiser. Our final total raised is nearly $38,000, and a few donations are still trickling in and will be gladly received. Congratulation go to 3B for awesome contributions this year. As a reward for outstanding fundraising, they will enjoy an outing to Paint Yourself Silly! We must also note 1B and 3B had 100% participation! The Junior High also raised enough money for a prize of a Gaga Pit, which will be used by all.
Thank you and God bless –the 2019-2020 Fundraising Committee, and a special thanks to Amy Fendrick and Eric Paseka for chairing the committee. We also appreciate the volunteers who helped us with the “thank you event” last Wednesday. See Mrs. Tran’s blog for details. A good time was had by all!

Please check with the school office first (402-421-6299 or firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out your dates of completion to determine if you need a background screen, SE training, or both.
LUNCH ACCOUNT REMINDER
When you go to a restaurant and enjoy a delicious meal, you wouldn’t think of leaving without paying your bill. This same principle applies to school lunch. Please make sure your students’ lunch accounts are well funded, and do not allow your balance to become overdrawn. Your cooperation is sincerely appreciated. Thank you!

If your child is to receive any medication at school, prescription or over the counter, please obtain an Authorization for Medication form from the school office, or you may print one from the school website. Click on Medication. ALL medication must come to school in its original container and be kept in the nurse’s office. Parents should send in an epi-pen for their child(ren) that require one.
